For years I have been making 2 trips to Vail each winter. For the last 5 years or so I have rented an SUV from Alamo (typically Ford Escape) and have never paid more than $400 for the week - with some discounts of course. Now this season the same SUV is upwards of $1200 for a week. What happened?
Rental Car in Vail
Probably limited vehicles/not enough advance time before reservation; could be more west coast skiers (there's a non-stop from LA to EGE) bcz there's no snow there, or some random change in price/schedule structure - which will change an hour from now -but I suspect not.
